Aw shucks, thanks for the kind words Jim. I honestly do feel that I owe so much to this hobby that can never be repaid no matter what I do. It is THAT good.

Copies


You are right Chuck.  A year or so ago Don brought it upon himself. 
He had several duplicate publications that he wanted to dispose.  He 
offered them to anyone who would notify him of their desirability.

He had a manual that I wanted and I sent the email.  He replied to 
me that he would send it to me and that the cost of the manual would 
be the cost of the mail.  He then directed me to mail the check to 
the ARRL in his name for spectrum defense (correct me if I am wrong 
about the fund Don).

I added 25 dollars to the mail costs and sent it to the ARRL in 
Don's name.  A small gesture by a big hearted man.  Thanks Don.
